Question about Garden
Hi and welcome to FiXya I am Kelly.
Your pilot light burning yellow is a sign of a dirty orifice. This can be caused by insects or a spider web in the pilot air supply.
To clean the air supply / orifice area see this page:
Also the thermocouple may not be close enough to the flame. You won't know this for sure until you finish cleaning the pilot / orifice area.
This link has step by step links for all of the components / causes of a pilot not staying lit. Click each of them and it will bring up a pdf file with step by step instructions and pictures:
A bad thermocouple can also cause this. Givien you have a yellow flame I do not think this is your problem. But if it ends not staying lit after cleaning see this page on how to get to the thermocouple:
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
